If you are considering terminating a relationship with your spouse, it is important to seek the advice of a reliable divorce lawyer who can describe all your options, and help you to determine your best legal course of action.

Divorce is the formal process required to end your marriage. It is not required to end a relationship between two spouses, but it is required if one or both spouses intend to re-marry.

If both spouses agree on the issues arising from their divorce, it is likely that the divorce can proceed on an uncontested basis. In that case, there is no need to attend court but our experienced divorce lawyers could guide you through the process.

A divorce can affect your rights and obligations on various issues such as parenting, support and property division, for example.

Nathens, Siegel LLP is one of the best divorce law firms in the Greater Toronto area, representing clients in contested, uncontested and high net-worth divorce proceedings.

THERE ARE SEVERAL GROUNDS FOR DIVORCE

Young married couple sit in a Toronto apartment after deciding to get divorcedCanadian courts may grant a divorce when there has been a breakdown of the marriage, and there is no reasonable prospect of reconciliation. A breakdown of the marriage can be established under the following circumstances:

  • The spouses have been living separately and apart for a minimum of one year
  • One of the spouses has committed adultery
  • One spouse has treated the other with such physical or mental cruelty as to make continued cohabitation intolerable

The vast majority of divorces granted in Ontario are based on the one-year separation rule, which does not require fault by either spouse and often takes less time to complete than the grounds of adultery or cruelty.
